An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 185 Devoe Street, in central Williamsburg. The project will measure 5,439 square feet and its residential units should average 720 square feet apiece. That means rental apartments are likely in the works. Dmitriy Shenker’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 24-foot-wide, 1,800-square-foot site is occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Graham Avenue stop on the L train is around the block.

  1. Williamsburg order the new building on four-story, come here and stand with rental apartments.

  2. In my opionion bedroom widths should be at least 11ft wide minimum. There should be space at foot of bed for a dresser. Since there may not be a walk in closet. Some 4 story 8 unit buildings are no more than 8ft wide. That is the size of a college dorm. Maybe even a prison cell is wider. If anything these should be studio units not one bedrooms. A livingroom and bedroom both 8ft wide is ridiculous. Im voicing this opinion in this post which does not apply. 25ft wide full floor units is the way to go. And duplexes are even better. Im wondering who rents places so small? Students cant afford the rent. Does the government section 8 provides the rent? Or government homeless assistance? Are these units taking the place of hotels to make money? Again im not talking about this house in particular. Someone please respond and let me know your opinion.
